Paul Molitor is the greatest star in Milwaukee Brewers history. And he might just be one of the most underrated players in history of baseball.

Yeah, it might be hard to call a guy who won two MVP awards underrated but that really was the case. During his days he only made three all-star games despite winning those two MVP awards.

Overall, Yount was one of the top players in the game. He ended his career with a .285/.342/.430 batting line, notching 3142 hits in his career. He won three Silver Slugger awards and a Gold Glove as well.

Over the years Paul Molitor played everywhere. He played some DH, first base, second base, third base and playing well at each position.

He was usually the leadoff hitter for The Brewers and led the AL in runs three times (Brewers were in the AL at the time). Molitor stole 30 or more bases eight times, and hit double digit homers nine times. He was a five time All Star for the Brewers, and won two Silver Slugger awards.

A key part of the lineup, Molitor was the catalyst for the Brewers during the 1980s. He produced an excellent .303/.367/.444 batting line, hitting 160 homers and 405 doubles. Molitor also showed off his solid speed, hitting 89 triples, scoring 1275 runs, and stealing 412 bases.

Ryan Braun

Many people don’t think Ryan Braun might deserve to be on this because of his PED scandal where he was suspended for 50 games. But, his numbers tell the story of why he deserves to be on The Brewers Mount Rushmore.

He entered the league slugging right away in 2007,hammering 34 homers and leading the National League with a .634 slugging percentage en route to being named the NL Rookie of the Year. He won the MVP award in 2011, and was the runner up the following year. A six time All Star and five time Silver Slugger, Braun has hit 30 or more homers six times, and has stolen 20 or more bases four times.

it is possible he could approach 3000 hits and 500 home runs, making him a candidate for the Hall of Fame.

Rollie Fingers

Rollie Fingers is probably the best pitcher in Milwaukee Brewers history despite pitching in Milwaukee for only 4 seasons.

As a relief pitcher, he won the Cy Young Award and MVP in 1981 after putting up 1.04 ERA in 47 games while getting 28 saves (a number of them of the multiple inning variety).

Fingers you got to admit also should probably just be on this list because of his epic mustache.
